here. Students used red, orange, yellow, and brown oil pastel to create analogous colors to blend for highlighting their pumpkin! Students loved blending and each student had their own interpretation of the piece!
We did this lesson with tempera cakes because the liquid watercolor was running! I saw this on a youtube video (I forgot to write down the link but I'll post it soon) and simplified it for the kids. They used two primary colors to decorate precut circles. Next we poked holes in the center with pencils and students were able to spin them to 'mix' the colors. On my display I used push pins so people could spin the student work! Great color theory lesson!

These looked kind of cute but creepy! They are made from two ceramic pinch pots with holes pierced through them to insert the antennae and legs. Students painted with watercolor and acrylic paint.
These pieces were modeled after Assemblage Art. Students used macaroni, beans, wood, and ribbons to create a relief sculpture on a poster board. Then we spray painted (outside!) the art to make each one all one color. Disposable gloves help protect hands from spray paint!
